Explain it clearly.

Second term will be neglected when h=3cm not 3meter for length 20 meter.

How it will be 3m?

Please explain clearly with the completed formula.

l = 20 m.
H2 = 2l,
H2 = 2*20,
H2 = 40.
And;
H = 6.32 or 6.33,
√40 = 6.32.

For slope (M) up to 20%.
Slope correction(Sc) = h^2/(2l).
Here d = 20m,
M = h/d,
0.2 = h/20.
H = 0.2 * 20 = 4m.
Here the nearest one is 3m.
So 3m is the appropriate answer.

How it will be 3m? Explain it with the formula.

The second term can be negleted only if the slopes flatter than 1 in 25..
That means 4%.

i.e, 4% of 20m = 0.8(4/5) ie, H shouldn't higher than 0.8m.
So option A is right.

The error can be accepted upto 10%. thus, the second term divided by the correlational factor equal 0.1.

Assuming the first term is x and the second term is y. Then y/x+y=0.1==> x+y/x=10 with y not zero==>1+x/y=9==>y=9. solve it u will get l=3.

The answer should be A. 1/2m.

With ref of Punmia : the second term in slope correction shall be neglected for slopes flatter than about 1 in 25 (i.e slope should be lesser than 0.04).

The slope is Vertical distance/Horizontal distance.
.
Here Vertical distance is h and the horizondal distance is √((L)^2 - (h)^2).

L = 20 given in the problem. We need to find, for which value of h the slope will be less than 0.04.

Sub h = 0.5, we get slope = 0.025;
Sub h = 1, we get slope = 0.050;
Sub h = 2, we get slope = 0.100;
Sub h = 3, we get slope = 0.150;

Therefore Option A (h=0.5m) is the correct answer.
